This week sees massage therapists, yogis, reiki specialists, Pilates teachers and more take over Les Gets as part of 100 Ciels, a brand new relaxation and wellness week designed to help us take better care of ourselves in today’s busy environment.
The brain child of Les Gets locals, Barbara Porret, a yoga teacher at Keolan Yoga, and energy therapist Catherine, 100 Ciels is designed to encourage people to take some time out for themselves and relax. We all have pretty hectic schedules nowadays, even our kids, what with high expectations at school and countless extra-curricular activities. The point of 100 Ciels is to invite people to step out of their busy lifestyles and take some time to wind down and reset – after all, a healthy body and a happy mind are the best tools to deal with the hustle and bustle of today’s society.
100 Ciels is made up of a collection of different activities, treatments, presentations and experiences, designed for both adults and children. Taking place in stunning outdoor and comfortable indoor spaces such as Lac des Ecoles, Mont Chery (overlooking the fantastic Mont Blanc) and Ferme de Lasarre, the event makes full use of Les Gets’ natural Alpine environment to help you feel at home.
The extensive programme consists of group sessions such as yoga or Pilates classes, meditation workshops and conferences, as well as individual treatments such as massages and hypnosis sessions. Children can enjoy storytelling sessions, nature walks and kid-specific massages, and there will even be specialised sessions for pregnant women.
Prices of sessions and workshops range from completely free to around €50 and you can either book your place online or in person at the Salle de la Colombiére from 10am until 6pm while the event is on. The full programme is available to view here so you can plan your week, or just head to Les Gets and enjoy the vibes. Either way, this is a great opportunity to make the most of a huge variety of wellness practitioners, all in the same place!
